I don't think the remark was that stupid, though it probably should have
been expanded to any box rather than just a windows box.

Anybody who connects a windows box directly to the net is asking for
trouble, even if its just on a dial up modem.
What a stupid fscking remark. I'm not even going to dignify your
stupidity with further comment.
I used to use Win-NT directly connected to the net and sure enough it
got hit. Similarly I used Linux connected directly to the net and again
it got hit. Now I use a combination and an ipchains firewall. I
haven't been hit since.
Like the cat says... Its only a matter of time...
